Deserts and beyond...places in and around the southern California deserts and beyond. Photo taken at Canyon Lake, in the Superstition Mountains of Arizona, December 2011. A few minutes later, after the sun disappeared, these cliffs were their normal color. They were only golden for a short time and I'm glad we were able to view them in their glory.

Desert morning~SkyWatch Friday~042012
I took this photo before the time change this spring. I'd have to be out on my walk before 6 a.m. nowadays to get the same shot and that is NOT happening!!! By the time I eat breakfast, feed the dogs, feed the birds, feed the cats, shower, and get ready, it's already 6:30 a.m. and the sun has already risen in the east...sigh..The last few mornings, it has been warm at that hour as temps rise up to the 100's here in the desert this weekend. Ugh. NONE of us are ready for that in April! We had to turn on the air conditioner last night and believe me, we get socked hard by Southern California Edison for that! But, what can you do? Suffer in the heat? The dogs were panting. Even the birds who visit my feeders out in the front yard were panting, so I turned on the hose for them and they drank up the water! Some even took a bath in it! It's supposed to be 99 degrees here today. Summer's comin'!!! SkyWatch Friday for April 20, 2012. To visit SkyWatch Friday, please go to: http://skyley.blogspot.com/
